and so pictures she shall have.
There are still ornaments to be placed.
Each has a story,
from the California Colleagues who keep us up-to-date on the White House collection,
to the couple who were married Christmas weekend, several decades ago.
We've lost track of them, but their gift-to-guests ornament reminds me of a lovely Chicago winter evening at the Three Arts Club in Chicago.
The boxes are back in the garage and the floor is swept.
I'm taking a minimalist approach to the back of the tree this year.
It received lights but no ornaments.
I only see three-quarters of the decor, and I don't store anything I don't want to see.
I put up everything I have, each one with a memory.
They made me replace Little Cuter's paper plate angel tree topper after 27 years of service.
Santa's more where I am right now, I think.
There's a definite dearth of wise men following any star I can find.
